  1. No point going to the Janaza of the Militant. Save him whilst he is Alive by putting some sense in these foolish boys to give up arms. Where are mehboobs & abdulas? Only the poor old Parents will suffer and suffer till they are alive.
    The Valley is an integral part of India. Earlier these people understand, better for them. India has nothing to lose except some foolish militants. That’s fine! Give up the gun and live.
